A Jedi is supposed to be a peacekeeper, a guardian, a protector of sorts.
As a peacekeeper we are supposed to resolve conflicts with little effort. At times mind tricks will be needed to achieve this goal, but if you do use them, remember that you may be met with some resistance. Remain calm, patient, and your desire result will come to be.
However, there are times when action will be needed. Only use the appropriate action needed in order to restore peace. As a Gray, tapping into your darker emotions will help you to achieve your goals, but be careful not to open the darkness too much, as a little goes a very long way. A fight is never our true intent.
As a guardian we may be required to protect others from harm, even from themselves. Predators come in all shape and sizes. Never let looks fool you, the most deadliest predators often look like the most beautiful creatures, drawing you in, letting your guard down in the process. This is how it obtains its victims.
As a Gray, when facing predators, your actions as a peacekeeper will be needed but often times a predator will lash out, pushing back, and force your hand. Projecting your dark side emotions in your commands to stand down may be enough to frighten the predator to run away. In rare cases that it does not, a Jedi must always be ready to defend.
The dark side is most useful in this manner. Again, only use what is necessary to restore peace. Once peace is restored find some place quiet where you can be alone with your thoughts. Do not dwell on the negative emotions you needed to fulfill your mission, however, meditate on returning yourself to being balanced.
It is important to remember your oath, “There is no good without evil, but evil must not be allowed to flourish.”
